Re: Buying a 2014 Spark EV with 61K miles. DCFC

Thanks for the reply but the seller didn't want to go through all that. I think I'm going to keep looking till I get something in the low 40s mileage.

Buying a 2014 Spark EV with 61K miles. DCFC

The readout on the full charge shows 72 miles and 4.6KW.

Re: Want to buy a Spark EV with 96K miles. Bad idea?

Thanks to all your excellent replies. Great input. I would have been comfortable with a range drop of 70 miles or so. My BMW i3 was rated similarly. My daily commute is only 40 miles and I have level 2 charging at home. But, not having DCFS was a deal breaker. I've taken my i3 Rex on EV alone to San...

Re: Want to buy a Spark EV with 96K miles. Bad idea?

$4k seems fair according to KBB assuming it has not been in an accident and is fairly good shape. Fully charge it and make sure the GOM range will work for you. If your route is on the highway vs. slower roads makes a difference. If you can buy a bluetooth OBDII adapter a program for your phone and...

If the vehicle has no issues, I think that price is a steal. Is it the right vehicle for you? Only you can determine that. If the vehicle has no issues, I think that price is a steal.

Want to buy a Spark EV with 96K miles. Bad idea?

I hope this great forum can help me. A friend of mine is selling his Spark EV with about 96K miles on it. He wants 3K for it. It is a 2014 model. In California the battery has a 10 year/150K mile degradation protection. Will it apply if I purchased the car?

Is it worth for 3K? Thanks.
